'Insecure' Returns In Less Than One Week & We Have Questions

On April 12, Issa and her crew are returning to a living room near you and I'm here for all the tea.

Culture & Entertainment

If 2020 was a food, it would be potato salad. With raisins.

No shade to people who f*ck with potato salad heavy but it's only April and it's safe to say that this has been a long ass year. Over the course of a few weeks, our country has transformed entirely and we have no idea how long this crisis will last.

These days, it feels good as hell to have something to look forward to and after a two-year hiatus, our good sis Issa Rae has finally pulled up with 10 new episodes of Insecure that will keep us distracted from the chaos in the best way.

It's been 29 long months since our besties in our head blessed our television screens and after taking some time to get their creativity (and their bank accounts) all the way in alignment, on April 12, Issa and her crew are returning to a living room near you, proving that every self-quarantine has a silver lining.

In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Issa explained that with a revamped team of writers and a newfound sense of urgency to give fans a reason to smile, she's lit AF about the premiere of Season 4. She explained:

"With 'Insecure' and other shows, people are looking for an escape and they get to go into this world where a pandemic doesn't exist and laugh and be immersed in somebody else's stuff."

Although last season may have taken the characters (and our emotions) on one helluva rollercoaster, Issa says that we can rest assured that this season will feature even more twists and turns.

"I love this season so much. Season three we always knew was the building season. In the [writer's room], we were always like, 'Ooh, season four going to be lit!' [This season is] just about asking the question: Are people in your life for a reason or a season?"

With less than a week left until the premiere, we have our popcorn and wine ret to go but I've had a lot of time to think over the past two years, and after rewatching Season 3, I realize that there are some serious questions that need answers in the new season.

For example...

Are Issa And Molly Growing Apart?

Since Season One, we've seen see Issa Dee and Molly go through the same drama that all besties go through. But is it me, or does it seem like their disagreements hit a lil different in the last season *insert eyes emoji*?

With Molly in a new relationship and Issa exploring new career opportunities, is it possible that this dynamic duo will be doing some social distancing of their own in the new season?

Will Kelli and Tiffany Rekindle Their Friendship?

Speaking of growing apart, tension was high AF between Kelli and Tiffany last season and I'm anxious to see how motherhood has an effect on their already rocky relationship.

Does Issa Give Nathan Another Shot?

Being ghosted is grounds to square up if you ask me. While I don't condone domestic violence in any way, it's safe to say that we all wanted someone to knock Nathan's block off at the end of last season. We were rooting for you!

In previous interviews, Issa revealed that she'll be playing the field with a few suitors, we're curious AF to know if Nathan is one of them.

Does Lawrence Actually Have… A Girlfriend?

And… it's Issa's friend?

I can't lie. Part of me kind of wanted to see Lawrence and Issa try to work it out one last time, but their breakup is part of what makes the show relatable AF. Relationships end. People move on. Preferably not with someone you know but hey, whatever. I'm here for the tea.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."

How We Met is a series where xoNecole talks about love and relationships with real-life couples. We learn how they met, how like turned into love, and how they make their love work.

However, with more honest conversations about how fluid sexuality and sexual expression can be, now there are so many more opportunities for self-exploration and taking back ownership of our identities again. One couple that is living their truth and being sexual beings unapologetically while living and loving their lives are Jasmine Johnson and King Noire.
